Robert Smith

(Sentenced to death: May 27, 1982) Sometime between March 11 and 14, 1980, Robert Smith, Joe Leonard Lambright and Kathy Foreman picked up Sandra Owen, a young woman with mental problems who was hitchhiking in the Tucson area. Smith raped Owen twice, and the group took her to a remote area in the mountains outside Tucson. Lambright and Smith then killed the victim by choking her, stabbing her and hitting her in the head with a large rock. They concealed her body by covering it with rocks, and the body was not discovered until a year later. Lambright and Smith were tried in a joint trial before two separate juries. Foreman testified against them in exchange for a grant of immunity.
